Alabama quarterback Bryce Young might have won the Heisman Trophy last year, but he could probably go pro in basketball if he wanted to switch things up. A recent video of the 20-year-old getting in some offseason cross-training shows off his handles and lights-out shooting.

Although Nick Saban may not love the idea of his starting quarterback running 1s on the hardwood, Young is clearly comfortable on the court. Before narrowing his focus on football, the Pennsylvania-native turned Californian also played basketball and has some serious skills.

Take a look:

Young is so athletic that one of his former trainers went so far to say that he could have played college basketball on a scholarship if he had stuck with the sport.

“He was athletic, his handle was really good, his shot was good, his decision making was good, he could guard. He was a really good all-around point guard,” trainer Mike Teller told “I’ve been doing this for going on 19 years, and in my opinion, there is no doubt he would have been a Division I point guard.”

Those are some big words, but the video backs them up. At 6-foot, 194 pounds, Young might be undersized for some programs. However, he could have easily lit up the scoreboard at a mid-major school and would have definitely had a few opportunities to play on the Power 5 level.

Obviously, we will never know what could have been. Young and Alabama return to practice for spring ball on March 21. In the meantime, he stays hooping.
